    I know it is no longer possible to track the organic keywords of your website's visits with Google Analytics, as it shows "not provided" for all keywords. But what about paid keywords? - Adwords. Will I be able to see the paid traffic keywords in my Google Analytics account if I run an Adwords campaign?

    If yes, do I need to connect my G Analytics account with my Adwords account?

    1. Yes
    2. Not necessarily. You have to go to AdWords dashboard and in settings, set yes to auto-tagging. What this does, it adds the url parameters that are needed for Analytics to read source, medium, term, etc...

    Due to Google Privacy Policy, all those searched queries while a user is logged into there Google account will not be shown, so the best possible strategy to overcome this is to install another tracker, i suggest Prosper 202 as a free alternative.
